I am started to feel really yuk. Since monday, I have had a 3hour IVIG infusion, d/r injections, gonal f injections, heparin injections, baby aspirin and prozac! My ovaries are twinging a bit, feel totally washed out, knackered and proper touchy! Feeling all unloved and grumpy-for no reason I hasten to add. I would also add that the prozac is for serotonin not depression, but feel like it hasn't made a jot of difference to my mood in any case!
I got this last time, but always cheeses me off-I am still getting a bit of brown sludge-yuk, from a/f which started 1/10/03. I can't remember how long it lasted last time, but I remember i had also started stims. It did stop, but can't remember on what day. I was d/r for about 10 days before a/f came. Anyone else had this?
Sorry to be a mizog this morning but just feeling a bit sorry for me today, and probably gonna have a lazy day at work, and trying to convince myself why it will be reasonable for me to do so!
Helen ~ you sound as good as me! i had flu last weekend and i think its dragged me down somewhat. My tummy keeps bloating up, my bb's v.sore, sore/pain in ovary area, not really eaten since sunday blah blah, off to docs this afternoon to help me thro'. (been d/r 2 weeks now, another 2 to go!)
Hope everyone else is ok? not caught up on end of last thread. Who watched maybe baby last night?
Helen - sorry to hear you're feeling rough - I can totally sympathise as up until yesterday I too was feeling ***t after all the drugs that I was pumping into myself. We're not doing too badly between us - I can add Viagra, Bromocryptine, Merional and Dexamethasone (also on aspirin and heparin) to your list. I did feel really grim from Mon - Wed, but somehow I turned the corner yesterday and now feel a load better. Handy hint - drink lots of water....try to drink a half pint every hour, it really helps (you need to be near a loo for this!)
News over here is that I am still coasting - no stims for me for the last 2 nights as I'm a bit over stimmed! Had 2 blood tests yesterday to monitor levels and looks like it'll be the same again today - am just about to head into town for the first one. I reckon they'll trigger me tonight and then it'll be EC on Sunday morning - I really hope so!! Pete is beginning to get nervous about his important bit!!
Good luck to everyone else - it's hard to keep up with what's going on when we get a new home!

sorry welcome to our gang NicJ you are very welcome,I am just the keeper of the wonky list,until I start in Nov and change threads(thought I was starting in Oct,which did not happen,so these lovely girls have decided to hold me hostage and not let me go until I start)
How are you all?Hope you aren't feeling to bad with your sniffing/stabbing?Sending you all lots and lots of and thoughts wherever you are in your treatments.
Only another 17 days to my Prostap injection.Can't wait.
I went for a day 2 blood test on Wed and got a b***h of a nurse so I am hoping I don't get her for my jabs!
Hope you all have a lovely week-end,I am decorating and xmas shopping so will be busy.
Hope you're all ok and everything is going ok.
Feel a bit of a fraud after reading thread, I'm only sniffing 5x day but today I feel like poo!!!
Cried all day and can't stop eating chocolate. I have no memory and the hot sweats are killing me. Is this normal when I'm just down regging?
Feel like I am going mad.
Sorry to be such a party pooper but in need of reassurance.
well i had my first scan and blood tests done today and everything was fine... my lining is nice and thin and I have started injecting the gonal-F tonight.
Was a bit nervous about doing it as it is the first time i have ever had to inject anything and I am a little bit squeamish about needles but I have to say I didn't even feel it so I was well chuffed!
it's a bit difficult getting the syringe to exactly the right amount but i am sure i will get used to it in time...
so i have to go back next Friday (17th) to monitor my progress but hopefully things are looking good for EC week commencing 20 Oct.
I saw Maybe Baby last night and got a bit upset - it's quite emotional watching other people go through the whole process. I don't know if i would be brave enough to let a camera crew film me go through all that!
Suz2 - I am sure that the drugs affect everyone in different ways and the symptons you have sound like common side-effects (unfortunately!) of the nasal spray.I haven't stopped eating since I started on the nasal spray (well that's what it feels like!) and am feeling v emotional (crying at the slighest thing!). Anyway I hope you are feeling better soon.
Mmmbop - thanks for adding me to the list. Just for info we are actually down for IVF with ICSI on standby depending on the quality of my hubbie's sperm on EC day. Good luck for your Nov start.
Lucyegg - how did your scan and blood tests go? Good luck for EC if it is on Sunday like you thought it might be.
Well I hope everyone is feeling better over the weekend and good luck for wherever you are in your cycle. Zoe - did the doctor have any advice for you?
Well aren't we all a happy bunch!!! I have been really chilled this week (except for bloody cold) and taken everything in my stride but tonight I started to feel really tearful and emotional (bloody drugs). I feel loads better now that I have had a cry with dp.
I really enjoyed the chat on Wednesday it was a real laugh - shall we do it next week?
Take care everyone and lets hope we all feel better tomorrow!
Hey, come along, there's no need for all these negative thoughts, we need to start thinking
So, I'll start the ball rolling with my latest news, all delivered with positive spin. We aren't having EC tomorrow as planned...not necessarily a bad thing as it would be dangerous to do so in my current state. Since Thursday I have been having blood tests twice daily....my arm is starting to look and feel like a boxer's nose, but never mind, it's all in a good cause. Luckily, my oestradiol level peaked yesterday and is now starting to come down...I can't seem to get a straight answer out of the clinic re: how low it has to drop to go to EC, but am putting my trust in them. I fear that we will be back in for scan and bloods again tomorrow (hopefully only once or I think I'm going to lose my marbles) but hopefully then we will trigger tomorrow night for EC on Tuesday. Pete and I are remaining positive and hopeful...it's weird that even when you've been through it twice already and know what to expect, it's never what you expect (sorry if I'm starting to babble but my brain is out to dry )
Hope you're all OK and keeping positive.....we can do it girls, and it WILL work for us!!
Am nervously waiting my afternoon phonecall so think I might go and veg on the sofa rather than watch the clock. Hang in there, and keep those dreams alive
Sorry for delay in posting but comnputer has been playing up.
Hope everyone is ok and all the best Jamapot for today. Hope it goes well.
Well still got the mood swings. Have been to a christening today, me and dh were godparents and I had to leave early because of hot sweats and tears!!! found it really hard to be in the room with all those under5's running around and especially as I'd had to listen to the vicar go on about what a wonderful gift a child was!!! I KNOW!!!
Thanks everyone for your kind words and positive thoughts I know it's all going to be worth it when we have our little rays of
Thanks Nic and mmmbop for advice on eating chocolate. i am particularly partial to those Kit kat kubes at the moment...and they do LARGE
bags. Eating like a
Thanks Lucy for keeping us all positive. Sorry to hear about your ec. Hope it won't be long.
Hi Indianna - still a bit teary but thanks for i needed it this week. Poor dh doesn't know what has hit him.
Thanks Becky for IM - can't wait to chat again, hopefully we can make wednesday a regular thing. I will IM you anyway.
all the best to everyone.
Right girls...let's remain positive, it will be soooooo worth it and I feel so much better just 'talking' to you lot. A few tears...so what if people think I am going mad. I know what's going on.
Looking forward to chatting on wednesday...usual time?
Hi everyone... well the weekend is nearly over again
where does the time go?
3rd day of stabbing and am feeling v down and depressed. had Sunday lunch with some friends today and i felt as though i wasn't my usual happy self. heard the news that one of our mutual friends is pregnant and i got a bit upset.
I am guessing that it must be the Gonal-F making me feel like this though?
Suz2 - i am still eating loads aswell! I know exactly how you feel re christening. We have been to 2 christenings in the space of 3 weeks and we were also godparents at one of them. It was really difficult being one of the few couples who didn't have any children there and i did get upset - so you are not the only one! It will be our turn soon enough I am sure..
have you just started sniffing? I got my AF about 8 days after starting sniffing...
Lucyegg - good luck for EC this week. Hope your latest blood tests/scans went well...
Good luck to everyone else starting down-reg this week and all those who are currently sniffing, stabbing etc. Let's stay positive and help each other through this!
